At Michael Garman Museum & Gallery, wander around a realistic, 279 sq m (3,000 sq ft) dollhouse inspired by the artist's life story and journeys throughout the Americas. The museum showcases more than 500 handmade sculptures representing American heroes from all walks of life--from cowboys, soldiers, and firefighters, to aviators and golfers. As you move on a scavenger hunt through this miniature city, the sculptures seem to move along with you thanks to skillfully designed holograms and visual illusions.
